      Few thoughts:
      - Preflop I make standard raise and am called.
      - Flop I make standard cbet and am called.
      These two points suggest not KK+ as they usually 3bet. And also not TT-QQ because they would usually raise the flop from fear of overcards. I figure it likely to be either a draw or overcards.

      - This makes me think a second barrel may be good here. What do others think?
